Jennifer Bullock joined the Gallery at the beginning of the month as our new Assistant Curator/Registrar.
Jennifer, a Kitchener native, returned to the region after spending four years working at the Thunder Bay Art Gallery. Now that she’s back she’s been hitting the ground running with us. In her first week she was familiarizing herself with the Gallery and our more than 4,000 piece Permanent Collection. She was also fielding phone calls about the collection on just her second day and most importantly learning all of our names!
As we get to know Jennifer we thought it might be fun for you to get to know her too:
Q: What are you hoping to accomplish in your new role at KW|AG?
A: I want to discover all I can about the Gallery and its collection and then make it as accessible and available to the community as I can.
Q: What aspect of your job are you most looking forward to taking on?
A: I’m looking forward to working with the Gallery’s Permanent collection. I’ll have the chance to work closely with it in the next few weeks as we get ready to launch the exhibition, Collecting Resonance: Works from KW|AG’s Permanent Collection.
Q: What do you do when you’re not at the Gallery?
A: Mostly, I read, watch movies and go to the cinema. I love live theatre and I check out what’s on at museums and other galleries.
Q: If you were a cereal, what kind would you be and why?
A: I don’t know. Something colourful, with a bit of crunch. I love colour.
Q: What would I find in your refrigerator right now?
A: My fridge always has just exactly what I need. And maybe some chutney and beetroot.
Q: If you could spend the day with any artist (dead or alive) who would it be and what would you do?
A: I know I’m far from the first person to say this, but I think I’d like to hang out with Leonardo DaVinci. Conversation is one of my favourite things and he had so many interests and such a varied life – it would be interesting.
